Going Out on a Limb

EEKS! Last night was the Paper Trey Ink release party for the fantastic new sets.  I own Boards and Beams and I fell hard for the accompanying set Home for the Holidays after I saw this beauty from Debbie.  Sine hubby was out late coming home from guys weekend in NYC, I chatted with the girls on line for a while, and then nearly fell off my chair when my friend Julie pointed out that I won for one of the categories of the Guest Star Stamper!!!  

I still can't believe it.  When my husband finally arrived home,  I was so excited about it, and had to tell someone.  He of course, well, didn't get it.  

So, I'll just tell all of you instead! Giggle.  Congratulations to the other winners, and honorable mentions too (Including my pals Kirsten and Charmaine!) So many fantastic projects in those galleries!  Hey, amazing stamps make it easy eh? 

Out on a Limb from Paper Trey is such a versatile and clean set.  I adore the simplicity of it, and I also love anything that you can freshen up with new colors for all year use.  I made lots of pink cherry blossom cards with this just after I purchased it this spring.  

This set is also ideal for my mass production projects-- assuming I can convince myself to keep the layouts pretty clean. 

This is the Paper Trey Pure Poppy cardstock and ribbon, matched with Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate ink and my Copic markers for the leaves. 

I embossed only the bottom half of my kraft cardstock with the swiss dots embossing folder and my Cuttlebug.   

To mix it up again, using all the same supplies and layout, I did another version that becomes a little more Christmas-y by using the Red Holly Berries instead.

These were both made for my Grandmother who is one of my best card clients. Every time I see her I get a big hug followed by "So, when can I get some more cards!"  I hope she likes them!
